Elementary Band

All fifth-grade students are introduced to band instruments through a presentation by elementary band instructors and a musical screening procedure. Potential band students have an opportunity to try out several instrument options. Weekly half-hour lessons are available during the school day with large-group rehearsals during the noon hour in fifth grade and before school in sixth grade.

Strengths of musical skills are diversified musical exposure, listening skills, psychomotor skill growth, self-expression through music and responsibility for practice and rehearsal attendance.

District and school band concerts take place throughout the school year.
